HAHAHAH!! a dead fox is a good fox!
I grow up in wisconsin listen to hunting, fishing, and trapping stories from my step grandfather, he said one year back in the day they trapped 40 foxes and then they would wonder why they are no foxes any more. Good guy, just kind of ignorant. You would here a lot of stories from older people about all the bear, fox, ect. there use to be. Over hunting, trapping and stupid rednecks that are looking for any reason kill everything off is the reason why there is no wild life there any more. Here in alaska is like wisconsin 30 or 40 years ago, I hear a lot of people that got back from a fishing or a camping trip and seen a bear down the river and the first thing they try to do is shoot it. It's one thing if it is dangerously close or is charging but it is another to shoot it for being a pest or just fun of shooting something and using the excuse that it is somehow going to hunt you down later. The point I'm trying make is 30 years from know, no matter what kind of animal it is, you will miss them when they are gone.
I am a hunter and a fisherman, I just believe in being responsible about it.
Someone for sure is kinda ignorant
Hey Josh, lighten up, enjoy some humor.
Wisconsin is not the desert you seem to think. Pretty sure there's plenty of bears there nowadays. Wolves are back in number. Got a bobcat trapping season. Big numbers of whitetail. Turkeys all over. I think maybe Ol Wis is about the same as it was 40 years ago.
I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
I have less friends now!!
I don't find the picture of dead animals being manipulated humorous. I find it sick, twisted, and disgusting, only the simple minded idiots could ever find something like that to be funny. Some people have no respect for the animals we trap, and hunt. If I was ever accompanied by a hunter who "childishly and sick mindedly" disrespected the game we downed.....I'd pound the holy living crap out of em till bones started snapping. It's very very sad and inhumane........
You would assault some one for posing a dead fox for a photo because it's inhumane?
Wouldn't it be more constructive to explain to the person that you feel it is disrespectful and that you feel they have acted in a way that is offensive to you because of your beliefs concerning life and death?
I don't think you would actually assault some one for such silliness. You would surely be arrested. Or worse, the person might shoot you in self defense....I think you are trolling for a response...here it is.
& it's been discussed, I do have to agree with Mainer...this is a disrepectful picture...albeit I see the humor in it...it's one of them pics that the LWNJ's will find, & exploit to the fullest extent...like we need any more fuel to the fire...

Be careful insinuating "rednecks" are ignorant. Sure Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy are funny stereotypes; however, how about all the low IQ "nogs" that also inhabit the deep south? Nogs is in reference to just an equally disparaged group when it comes to humor too.
I've encounterd this anti-southern attitude from the "yanks" over the years, always hating they have to live among our "small deer," how we like white gravy over that "crappy" brown stuff they consider a topping. When will it ever end?
Most people who have never lived among rural, traditional folk can sometimes harbor such negative stereotypes. It was from these "hillbillies" our founding father's came, not from the enlightened, socialistic types from the North who think Obama is the 2nd coming of KFC. Get my drift?
You may also find it odd that a Google search would show that etymologically a "redneck" was an indentured servant or White slave, often owned by others, including "free black" slave-owners.
Think about it: It was cheaper to enslave children from England and ship to America than go half-way around the world to get slaves from Africa...Kinda puts a spin on the word "kid-nabbing," doesn't it? I guess we can thank the "redneck" descendants for knowing our history.
Having spent time with relatives in Mississippi, back in the '80s, I loved the accents, not to mention a black man who was more "redneck," and old-schooled than his lily-white, wood-dwelling contemporaries. That man knew how to catch crawfish AND catfish. He was more ethical than any city-based angler, be it from Des Moines or Los Anchorage. Of course, there is always an exception to every self-delusional, biased "rule."
I apologize for hi-jacking this thread. I go to great lengths to find fellow Southerners in this state. We don't appreciate being denigrated with the blanket-label of "redneck," for the most part.
I just hope the moderators know that I am objective, giving others a lesson that being a "redneck," or "southern boy" is ok, cuz that includes the origins of American-based gospel and blues, taught from our people to our black friends way back in the day(s). Of course, some "rednecks" kill for no reason at all, and the initial poster of this racial pejorative is right -- it "aint ethical," to say the least.
I've seen the picture on other forums. I think it was funny. I wouldn't pose any dead animal other than the trophy picture, myself. You can call me a redneck, but disrespecting animals means something way different to me.
MAKE THAT "oh, really?" (BTW: My attitude at this moment is "Oh. Ho hum", in case anyone interprets this as otherwise.) Dear God/Mainer: I guess I better watch out, or someone will pound the holy, living sh*t out of me! Chill out, Jack. Who TF elected you judge, jury and executioner? Self-appointed? I could draw some conclusions about you, too, self-righteous being one of them. Life ain't pure and perfect, and it is usually not wise or constructive to jump up and down w/ comments like you made; not publicly, anyway. So you are the perfect person who respects everything to the hilt, not "sick or twisted" at all; well, BFD. Are you bragging or complaining? You won't take a pic like that of a dead animal, but you'd beat a fellow human till bones break. Real respectful! You think I don't respect what I kill, and also the stuff I don't kill? Gimme a break, dude. And I suppose, btw, that every picture of every person gloating behind their fresh-killed game is also a no-no? (I don't particularly care for those, but whatever; I ain't The Judge.) Be careful what you write; it lasts a long time, and some day you may regret it. Been there, done that, got the scars and the tee shirt. later. j

The bickering over this picture saddens me! There is a group of people out there that probably are getting to the point that they out number us looking to end any kind of hunting and fishing that we do. Get over the differences in opinion of the picture. All of us are hunters and fisherman and need to stick together to fight off the anti's. We have enough people out there gunning for us, we dont need to fight each other.

Sheesh! This thread looks like the dialogue for the Jerry Springer Show!
The only thing I can see wrong with the picture is that Mr. fox needs to close the bolt on his gun so's he can shoot another raggit! Heck the old Buggs Bunny, Daffey Duck and Elmer Fudd cartoons got more graffic than that picture. Old Elmer Fudd used to stick his critters in the cooking pot when they were still alive with the hide still on them......can't remember anyone wanting to break his bones.
Can "Rednecks" live in Iowa? My friends and relatives in N Dakota have called me that for years! I actually eat squirrel meat, I got deer heads hanging on my walls one of which dones a John Deere hat...am I being morbid and disrespectful to that deer? Don't hardly think so!
As far as the anti's are concerned they can kiss my back side. They started this fire and they are the ones using everything hunting related as fuel for their own fire. Any steps backwards for something as trivial as this so as not to ruffle their feathers is playing right into their hands.
I was taught to be respectful and thankful for the fruits of my labor in regards to hunting and fishing and this photo just does not cross that line or offend me. If the fox were being mutated or displayed in a gross manner then it'd be objectionable but I didn't see it that way! So lets cut this guy and Elmer Fudd some slack as their intentions are of a positive nature!
when did they start giving fox's hunting licenses?
sure, there are issues w/ the photo, but, hey; they didn't dress the dang fox up in little cutsie outfits, he's HUNTING! so, delete it. cool. later. j
